Actually I did pretty good. Of the original list, I still have three and one half books left. Then I added three books and read two of those. So I'm only one and a half books from my original goal if you count numbers.
The hardest part about this challenge was talking myself out of grabbing something else. I wanted (still do) to read these. But I also wanted to read other books on my shelves (like the Charles Martin novels I borrowed from my daughter over a year ago). Plus I've added a couple books to my Nook. A friend lent me The Girl Who Played With Fire that I plan to read this month. Then there are the series books I'm reading that I borrow from the library.
In other words, the list goes on and on.
Should I challenge myself again this year? I haven't decided. I can find all sorts of reading challenges through my friend Shree. Who knows?
